The first major project from factual veteran Jane Root’s new production company, Nutopia, is suitably epic: a 10-part series for History billed as ‘an exuberant, unprecedented look at America.’ In an early press release for America, History president and GM Nancy Dubuc said the series will give its audience the opportunity to ‘watch America literally grow before our eyes’ – a feat accomplished through state-of-the-art CGI, dramatic recreations of key events in the American story, and of course, interviews with noted historians. The combination of elements results in a modern documentary hybrid that will attract a new generation as well as those who may have watched Alistair Cooke’s America: A Personal History back in the day.

Partners: Nutopia (London/Chevy Chase) for History, distributed through AETN International

Length: 10 x 60 minutes

Airing: April, 2010

Rights available: All rights available outside U.S.
